New Explosive Decompression Perfluoroelastomer for Oil and Gas Valves

High performance seals specialist, Precision Polymer Engineering (PPE) has announced a new explosive decompression resistant perfluoroelastomer for seals used in ultra-aggressive, oil and gas processing applications. The Perlast G92E elastomer combines high levels of chemical resistance with an increased explosive decompression capability, setting a new performance standard for perfluoroelastomer seals in valves in oil and gas exploration and processing.

Perlast G92E is part of the EnDura range of elastomers designed specifically for the oil and gas offshore industry. The polymer’s high fluorine content renders it inert to a wide range of liquids and gases such as hydrogen sulphide and methane encountered during oil and gas operations. Suitable for environments up to 260OC, G92E has tested successfully in a range of high temperature, high pressure and aggressive gas conditions, including those described in NORSOK M710, and is currently undergoing further industry and international explosive decompression standards testing.
EnDura – high performance elastomers for oil and gas

EnDura is a family of different elastomer types that offer superior chemical resistance compared to conventional explosive decompression grades, greater high and low temperature capabilities and are tested to the major international explosive decompression standards such as NOROSK M-710. The EnDura range includes HNBR, TFE/P, and FKM elastomers.
“Perlast G92E is an important development which expands the Endura range’s capability into the upper end of the performance range for elastomers in oil and gas processing,” says David Holt, Director Business Development, PPE Ltd.
